I am listening to the sound of the rain as I type - a constant in the past 36 hours or so. It seems summer ended last week and a cold damp autumn arrived yesterday.
The Moo is at a friend's house today and aside from the sound of the rain, silence has fallen like a blanket. I am relishing the few hours of quiet to sort out and catch up on a few things but my heart is heavy too. Next week she will be back to school. Year 4 and all that brings. A well entrenched junior rather than a new one. An old hand.
Every year I am dragged kicking and screaming in to September. I love the summer and drink it up but it doesn't matter how much I embrace and enjoy it, I am never ready to embrace the return to routine and commitment.
So today I am starting gently. Cleaning the sand from our sandals and digging out a favourite cardi.
We're not quite there yet and for that I am grateful.
